How to Diss? : Lesson 1

 Dissin or battling is the true essence of rap. Dissin, for those who dont know means insulting. The lines rapped in a battle are mostly on the spot and not pre-written or pre-meditated. The key to winning a battle is to go with the beat. If you are totally out of rhythm then you are most likely to lose. Rappers are judged on factors such as lyrics, delivery, sting and crownd response. A rap battle is no childs play, you lose a battle and you lose respect. And the best way to earn fast and hard respect is to win a battle.

  Alright, now that you know the importance of a battle lets get started. The best way to start is to diss yourself. Yes you read it right, you are the best person who can diss you. Why? because you know everything about yourself. Stand in front of the mirror and keep looking into your eyes, stare at yourself for at least two minutes, then you can start dissin yourself. You might find a dozen mouths who say don't ever try dissin yourself, well i don't agree to that. When you diss yourself in front of the mirror you would automatically know your strengths and weaknesses at a personal level. Practice makes a man perfect, so practice! practice! practice! 

Warning: When I say diss yourself it doesn't , mean you need to diss yourself in front of a crowd. Diss yourself only when you are alone and not too much else you shall start hating yourself.
